The RLB Legacy

May 31st, 2006 | Comments | Posted in Music, Personal

I found an old video (circa 2002) of my old band the Red Light Bandits doing a live webcast, and threw a few songs up on YouTube. Take a look.

I know you RLB fans out there will appreciate those clips… it was a magical time, full of wonder.

Edit: In honor of my friends at the Y! who worked tirelessly the last few months to build the new and awesome Yahoo! Video, I have uploaded the videos there and embedded one here. Rock and roll!

Everything Happens For A Reason (O RLY?)

This is bullshit, man. Like, seriously.

Remember this post I wrote a little over a year ago? Probably not. But the relevant part is this:

In a horrific twist of fate that proves once and for all there is NO GOD, Tokyo’s own Pillows are FINALLY doing a small U.S. tour and playing in San Francisco — two days after I leave for Tokyo!! I am seriously considering flying to New York a couple days before I head to Japan just to see them at the Knitting Factory; I fear that since most of the shows are 21 and over, most of their kiddie fans won’t show and they’ll never come back to the US. I tell you what, the universe sure has a sick sense of humor.

Well, I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that the Pillows are coming back to the US. The bad news is that they are doing it 2 days after I leave for Sweden. And this time, they are starting the tour *after* I leave, just to make sure I can’t fly someplace to see them. Just to make this clear for those who may not know, it’s not like I travel alot; I’ve left the country exactly twice in two years… both just happened to be the week the Pillows came to town. Are they waiting for me to submit my vacation forms before booking their damn tours?

This has ceased to be funny. For reals.

EDIT: Delicious has opened an official site for the 2006 USA tour. They haven’t added San Francisco, but I have heard through the rumour mill that they will. Everyone going, you can just eat me.
